I am a 60 year old fat guy with Diabetes. I never gave much care or attention to my Diabetes over the years (15) and of course it has manifested into Periphial Neuropathy. I have been on approximate 5 or 6 diets throughout my life so you know I have been struggling with my weight my entire life (born 12 pounds 14 ounces) and its been an uphill struggle ever since. At age 18 I joined Weight Watchers and lost 67 pounds. At age 25 I was in on the liquid protein fad and lost 130 pounds in 4 months. At age 36 I jumped on Dr. Atkins and kindley gave up 90 pounds in about 8 months. At age 48 weighing in at my heaviest 386 pounds I woke up one morning and decided to quit eating and quit smoking (3 pack a day habit) and start walking. I lost 161 pounds over the course of 2 years but not without sacrifice. At the 108 pound loss level I found some blockage around my heart and went in for a Triple bypass (Nov 7, 2002) but continued on with my walking routine (5 miles daily) and I joined a gym to help me lose the additional 53 pounds and shape up what I had left hanging all over me. I was able to maintain my 225 body up until 2007 when again I went to hell in a handbasket and I balloned back up to 300 pounds. I started walking again (this time not so easy) and I lost 35 pounds but noticed my legs, calves and feet were not such willing participants. I went back to my old eating habits and here I am today with Diabetic Periphial Neuropathy and I can barely stand on my feet let alone walk on them but I am once again trying through diet and exercise to drop 100 pounds and get back to my fighting weight of 225 pounds. I know at 60 it is going to be tough and finding the magic plan is always a chore but I figure if I want to be around another 5 or 10 years I have got to do something. I have been clean eating for a month now but I am showing very little results in the weight loss department. I am however getting my Blood Sugar levels under control and I guess at the end o
